Welcome to Scotland
Enjoy a moment of peace as you walk along the sandy shores of our Hebridean islands. Soak up the energy of the crowd at a ceilidh gig in the heart of Glasgow. Feel the burn of joy and success as you reach the top of a hill in Aberdeenshire.
All these moments and more are calling you to Scotland. We’re a country of stunning landscapes from lochs to glens, and a place of creativity and inspiration from mural art to gigantic sculptures. Scotland is a place of quiet escapes and energising cities, a spot for solo trips to try something new, and family adventures to share new memories.
